Amtrak service was expected to resume Wednesday along the busy northeast corridor.

The Long Island Rail Road expected a near normal commute for this morning’s rush hour with delays of up to 15 minutes. Service was up-and-running though some trains were cancelled during the morning rush on the Babylon, Port Washington, Port Jefferson and West Hempstead lines.

Metro-North is operating a weekday schedule on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven lines. Both railroads say all service is subject to equipment and weather-related delays.

Long Island bus service was running with minor detours.
